Introduction

A Heartrune is essentially an ultimate ability in New World. Once you have obtained the item you can equip it much like a weapon. Open your inventory and drag it to the appropriate slot. Once you have it equipped you can then utilize it like an ability. There are several different types in the game, and each have unique abilities.

You can earn your first one, the minor version of cannon blast, by completing the quest “Secrets of the Heartgem.” This quest can be obtained from Anna Rozsa who is located at the Palace of Nekhbet, and will introduce you to them and how they work. This is a side quest that will become available only after you have progressed past the “Past Prologue” quest for the main story in the zone.

All Heartrunes and Their Use

There is only 1 rune type for the Minor and Major rune categories. However, there are a total of 27 Runes in their legendary form. There are 9 different types of runes and 3 categories for each rune. The categories simply change the perks associated with each Rune.

Prima Fury

Become enraged, staggering and dealing 150% heartrune damage to targets within 3m. Then turning into a hulking beast for 10s. While active, light attacks deal 100% damage and your heavy attack is a leap, dealing 120% damage and knocking down targets. Use it again to end it, dealing 150% damage within 3m.

This heartrune requires the expansion, Rise of the Angry Earth.

700 Gear Score Legendary Versions

In order to obtain the 700 gear score versions you must own the Rise of the Angry Earth Expansion. You must also have the previous 625 version in you inventory. Along with those requirements the following materials are needed.

  • 50x Gypsum Orb
  • 10x Runic Voidstone

How to Use Your Heartrune

Once you have obtained a rune you will see it in your inventory under the inventory category, “Runes.” From there you simply need to equip your desired rune into the slot beneath your weapons. You can switch your rune out just as you would any other piece of equipment in New World.

Heartrune

Once you slot the rune you will see the icon at the bottom of your screen that will depict which rune you have slotted.

Using abilities, light attacks, and heavy attacks will begin to fill up your “ultimate” meter. Taking damage does not fill up the meter. Once the meter is full you can then activate the rune by pressing the default key of “G”. After activation the meter will deplete. There is no timer cooldown, but you must fill the meter back up in order to use the ultimate ability again.
